Matilda is a delightful, chatty 4 year old girl from Surrey. She is active, sociable and loves spending time with her older brother and friends. She has cerebral palsy and can only walk independently indoors and short distances outdoors. Over long distances and uneven surfaces she uses a wheelchair.

Her mum contacted Action For Kids and asked to help fundraise for Matilda’s trike at the cost of £1,128. The trike would not only enable her to participate in an activity on a par with her peers and her family and provide her an enjoyable therapeutic play activity but also improve her muscle strength, her sitting balance and contribute to maintaining lower limb ranges of movement.

Her physiotherapist recommended a Theraplay tricycle after an assessment Matilda had on it. She wrote us a supporting letter saying: “As part of our physiotherapy sessions, Matilda has learned to pedal and steer our tricycle which she enjoys immensely. I feel it would be hugely beneficial for her to be able to use a trike regularly and has been assessed for a Theraplay “Terrier” tricycle. There is maximal room for growth and has a carer control so that direction, speed and breaking can be initially controlled by an adult while Matilda learns how to use the tricycle safely outdoors. “

Our fabulous donors helped raise the funds required and Matilda loves her trike "and it's pink"
